Entropy (NY) are a hardcore punk band from the greater Hudson Valley area, who formed in 2012. The band are set to release their third LP, The Future Is Bright, on August 13 through All We Got! Records (NY)/Mt. Crushmore Records (NJ).
New Noise are proud to premiere the band’s newest single, “Too Much Cali, Not Enough New York,” below:
Entropy (NY) writes songs that could be missing from Revelation Records roster, Dischord’s discography and the Tony Hawk soundtrack all at once.
Their first release in five years, The Future Is Bright was recorded with long-time friend and engineer John Naclerio of Nada Recording. If you ever pictured what it would sound like for an ‘80s east coast hardcore band to time travel and pull influence from late ‘90s west coast pop-punk, this is the band for you.
After playing as a four-piece for some time, the band— Patrick, Brian, Brian, Jaclyn, and Colin—had some collective bargaining discussions with their union in 2018 and it was ultimately decided to become a five-piece. By doing so the band matured into their sound and discovered the cliches of band biographies.
On the track’s release, the band states:
“On this song, and The Future Is Bright overall, we tried to expand our boundaries a bit while still retaining our sound and identity. It would be hard to overstate the impact that ‘90s melodic punk rock had on us and this song is a product of that influence. The track discusses the overall idea that the nature of performative gestures can actually do more harm than actually help accomplish something.”
